Road To Morocco.

Uh-oh, I'm feeling a strong pull towards Morocco. Not the place, although that would be lovely, but indeed the Moroccan look. I'm thinking of change...again. While away at the beach this weekend I splurged on a bunch of international design magazines, like the French Coté Sud and Marie Claire Maison, and the UK's Living Etc., all of which were featuring these very stark, yet warm rooms with a distinctly Moroccan, or ethnic feel and I found myself with a big fat decor crush. You know I tire of my surroundings easily, and try and try again to lose the look of clutter, so perhaps these rooms with their pretty, yet plain serenity drew me in. Here's a look at what's belly dancing around in my brain.

I can see some of John Robshaw's handcrafted fabrics in my future.

I love the idea of an old iron twin-sized bed, transformed
into a lovely lounge for my bay window.

I also want to incorporate some gray flannel looking fabrics.
I love the combination of grays, pinks and mauve accents.

Do you read My Marrakesh?

That is where I get my Moroccan thirsts from. said...

I sooo adore Living, Etc. Too bad a subscription is too expensive!

We just bought some John Robshaw sheets and a bedspread. I love them - very Indian inspired(with a Morrocan twist!)

I have the same soft spot for this look. More on that in my blog next week :)
You could pull this off in your white spaces. It would be lovely.
